Tune into the Puget Sound Estuarium’s Facebook Live or join through Zoom on December 1st at 6:30 PM for an inspiring talk with LLTK’s Shaara Ainsley  Join us to learn more about the substantial migration barrier that is the Hood Canal Bridge and how they are working to find a solution.

Up to 50% of the young steelhead who reach the Hood Canal Bridge are dying there, making it one of the deadliest fish migration barriers in Washington State. Long Live the Kings has been investigating these substantial losses and Shaara will present on the resulting discoveries and potential solutions. The effort to resolve this significant challenge to steelhead migration is a collaborative assessment facilitated by Long Live the Kings in partnership with the Hood Canal Coordinating Council, tribal governments, and local, state, and federal agencies.

This talk is great for those who are interested in our local fish populations and care about human impacts on our environment. This will be a great opportunity to see how scientific research is being used to advocate for steelhead and salmon here in the Puget Sound. Tune in on December 1st to see science in action!

Young ones are invited to join in the virtual talk by following along with coloring pages related to the Discovery Speaker Series topics that will be available for download prior to the event. Coloring pages can also be picked up at the Estuarium during our weekend open hours.
